The Stanton family’s dog, a 7-month-old bulldog mix named Diesel, was shot by a police officer after investigators said it and a doberman-pit-bull mix, attacked a family walking near their Fremont home on Thanksgiving.Police said 30-pound Diesel was shot after biting a 15-year-old boy and then coming after the officer. “He came toward the officer aggressively and at that point the officer took him down,” Freemont Police Chief Ron Rawlings said. Rawlings said the officer who shot Diesel is a K-9 officer.“He loves pets, probably more than anyone,” Rawlings said. TYPICAL OF NUTTERS, THE OWNERS ARE SAYING THEIR DOGS JUST WANTED TO "PLAY".

http://www.wcnc.com/news/local/7-year-old-attacked-by-neighbors-dog-82007882.html Rock Hill, S.C. -- A first-grader was recovering at home Monday, five days after he was attacked by a neighbor's dog while riding his bicycle.Ravion Cunningham, who goes by the nickname Ray-Ray, said he tried to jump over a fence to avoid the pit bull, which had escaped from the owner's house."I was trying to run as fast as I can," the 7-year-old told NewsChannel 36. "He started biting me.""He was gone about 10 minutes and he came back with blood everywhere," said Barbara Cunningham.Cunningham was injured in his face and buttocks and part of his right ear was severed."It was just very traumatic," said Casandra Cousar, a neighbor who witnessed the attack from the porch of her home on Rich Street.Cousar said she rushed to help the boy as the dog's owner also gave chase."I was beating the dog with a stick and she was pulling at the dog," Cousar said.Eventually freed from the animal, Cunningham rushed to his grandmother's home, about 100 yards from where he was attacked.Hospital staff at Piedmont Medical Center re-attached the boy's ear and closed other wounds with more than 100 stitches.Barbara Cunningham said doctors told her Ravion's face would likely be permanently scarred.It was not clear why the dog lunged at the boy, although Cousar said she believed the 1-year-old animal was attempting to play with Ravion and got excited when he tried to run away."If they think you’re playing, they will chase you and snap at you," she said, adding her family also owns a pit bull. AS USUAL, THE WIGGLE BUTT JUST WANTED TO PLAY AND LEFT LIFE ALTERING SCARS ON A FIRST GRADER JUST RIDING HIS BIKE.

http://www.wwaytv3.com/node/22267 WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A 13-year-old on his way to the school bus was attacked by a pit bull Friday morning. The attack occurred around 7:30 on Angel Island Road in the Monterrey Heights neighborhood of New Hanover County.Vincent Marchese says the pit bull jumped the fence and chased after him, biting him in the leg. Marchese had surgery on his leg at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. He says he'd be scared to walk by the home again if the dog was in the yard."They should put it to sleep," said Marchese, "or at least do something with it so it doesn't hurt anybody else."Neighbors say they've seen children taunt the dog before, but they could not say whether or not Marchese was involved. Marchese says he never bothered the dog.New Hanover County Animal Control says there are no prior reports of the dog running loose, but the pit bull will be confined for 10 days, which is a standard practice for all bite incidents. PIT NUTTER NEIGHBORS BLAMING THE VICTIM.

http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/92683444.html Authorities say a boy walking to a school bus stop was attacked by two dogs Monday morning. Wayne County Animal Control says they have quarantined the two dogs, one a pit bull mix and the other a lab mix. It happened on Pine Tree Lane in Dudley. Animal Control Director Vicki Falconer says the 9-year-old from Brogden Elementary School had a few puncture wounds and bruising from the attack. The child was transported to the hospital and the school system says the third grader has since been released. Falconer says the bus driver pulled up to the bus stop and waited for the child. She says off in the distance the driver spotted the attack and used a broom on the bus to break up the attack. A teacher's assistant stopped to help as well.Animal Control says they have not yet been able to speak with the child's family. They say the two dogs, which live next door to the child, were very friendly when they picked them up from their yard.Falconer says the dogs, both about a year old, will stay at the shelter for a mandatory rabies check and then the owners can get them back after paying a boarding fee and other costs. She said if their investigation deems the dogs to be dangerous then the owner could be given stipulations for their return. Animal Control says this is the first problem they've had with these two dogs. MAYBE THE FIRST BUT WON'T BE THE LAST.
